Industrial engineering is founded on the idea that there is always a better way. This mantra rings true in everything an industrial engineer does, from lean manufacturing to six sigma, to quality control and ergonomics. This paper demonstrates the uniqueness of this discipline, the impact its techniques has in sectors outside of manufacturing, and the positive effects it has on businesses.

The work presents report on production and analysis of bioresin from epoxidized mango kernel oil (EMKO). The bioresin (acrylated epoxidized mango kernel oil) or AEMKO was produced from epoxidized mango kernel oil via acrylation chemical reaction route. The FTIR spectrum analysis of epoxidized mango kernel oil (EMKO) and acrylated epoxidized mango kernel oil (AEMKO) produced gave the degree of acrylation (DOA) as 46%. The Viscosity of AEMKO (resin) was determined at room temperature (25 °C) to...

Structure failure often occurs in the structure of wall. This failure can adversely affect the comfort level of the structure. Knowing the behavior of structure resulting from the load is important, as it can help to predict the strength of the structure and comfort of the structure being worked on. One way to find out and predict the strength and comfort of the structure as a result of the load received is experimental test and simulation. The simulation VecTor2 used to predict the shear...

The window functions used for digital filter design are used to eliminate oscillations in the FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filter design. In this work, the use of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm is proposed in the design of cosh window function, in which has widely used in the literature and has useful spectral parameters. The cosh window is a window function derived from the Kaiser window. It is more advantageous than the Kaiser window because there is no power series expansion in...

Linear attenuation coefficient (𝜇) is a measure of the ability of a medium to diffuse and absorb radiation. In the interaction of radiation with matter, the linear absorption coefficient plays an important role because during the passage of radiation through a medium, its absorption depends on the wavelength of the radiation and the thickness and nature of the medium. Experiments to determine linear absorption coefficient for Lead, Copper and Aluminum were carried out in air. The result...

The adsorption potential of two samples of clays namely Kaolinite (KAO) and Metakaolinite (MKB) for the adsorption of Cu2+ ions from aqueous solution was investigated. The effects of pH, contact time, adsorbent dosage and initial concentration of Cu2+ ions solution were studied on the adsorption feasibility onto KAO and MKB. The maximum adsorption capacities of Cu2+ ions onto KAO and MKB were found to be 14.3 and 21.3 mg.g−1 respectively .The Dubinin-Kaganer-Radushkevich model’s revealed...

Topics: Idempotent semiring, Multiplicatively subidempotent semiring, Periodic, positively totally ordered,...
